Reveal Home Pregnancy Test (1 Test)
The Reveal Home Pregnancy Test is an extremely quick, sensitive and reliable indicator of pregnancy.
It works by detecting the presence of a hormone called hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotrpin) in the urine – hCG is produced by the placenta, and is not normally present in urine in women.
Each pregnancy test has specific chemicals dried within it. The test stick can be either dipped in urine held in a container (the cup method) or, the absorbent end directed in the flow of urine (the midstream method). This urine sample then travels along the test stick and if hCG is present in the urine sample it will form a complex with coloured particles which have an antibody to hCG bound on it. This complex will be bound by another antibody known as the “capture” antibody and a visible pink line will appear. A pink control line will always appear to show that the test has worked properly.
On occasions, the test indicates positive, but on further examination by a doctor, pregnancy cannot be confirmed. There are two reasons why this may occur.
Firstly, there may have been a procedural error. The red control line contains a tiny amount of hCG dried in the membrane. Sometimes urine accidentally splashes onto the result window and washes a small amount of that hCG on the capture antibody. The result can be that a faint pink line may appear indicating positive for pregnancy (false positive).
Secondly, a positive result may have been seen after a natural termination. Statistics obtained from published literature show that natural termination occur in 22% of clinically unrecognised pregnancies, and 31% of pregnancies overall. Such natural termination may be characterised by menstruation slightly later than the regular cycle, and possibly with a heavier flow than normal. Levels of hCG still circulate in the bloodstream for some time after a natural termination before passing out in the urine, and therefore it is still possible to see a positive result for a short time afterwards.
Whenever there is any doubt about such results, the family doctor should be consulted.
The Reveal Home Pregnancy Test has been shown to be an extremely reliable test when performed in accordance with the instructions.
Please remember that the Reveal Home Pregnancy Test is only an indication of pregnancy – it is your family doctor who will make the diagnosis, and you should always consult your doctor immediately if you have any doubts at all.
